    Thats what im trying to do Sir, to enter the bios setting , but i cant do it because there was no LCD display , No beep codes , only the 3 green LED lits on steady & seems there was no activities but im sure the processor was working because I feel it warming.
    This problem happened just after changing the 3 volts bios battery , the original one was already discharge & reads only 1 volt .

Try link: http://blog.parts-people.com/2014/06/27/dell-inspiron-m501r-m5010-beep-codes-diagnostic-indicators-2/ How to identify beep codes: When a laptop or computer first powers on, it goes through an initial set of diagnostic tests to make sure vital components are preforming correctly. These tests are called POST or Power On Self Test. When a test fails, the user is notified via POST codes, Light codes, or Beep codes. For diagnosing Beep codes you need to:
  • Power on the laptop or restart it if it is already on.
  • Listen to the number of consecutive beeps when the computer begins to boot. Restarting the laptop may be necessary and should not harm the laptop at this time.

  • 5 Beeps: Replace the CMOS battery.
  • 6 Beeps: Reseat or replace the video card or replace the motherboard / system board.
  • 7 Beeps: Reseat or replace the CPU or replace the motherboard.
  • 8 Beeps: Reseat the LCD cable or replace the LCD screen.

Hello Hardyjosef,
Below is the beep code chart for the mini 10 systems.
No POST
If the system does not perform a Power-On Self-Test, there are various things to look for:
1.Check that the system has a power light.
2.If the system has no power light, ensure it is plugged into AC power. Remove the battery.
3.If the system has power but is not performing a POST, Check for one of the following Beep code errors.
Beep Code Description Failure Coverage
1 BIOS ROM checksum in progress or failure. BIOS Chip Motherboard Failure or ROM Error
2 No RAM Detected No Memory Detected
3 Chipset Error (North and South Bridge Chipset, DMA/IMR/Timer Error for Intel platform); Chipset Error Motherboard Failure
Time-Of-Day Clock test failure.
Gate A20 Failure
Super I/O Chip Failure
Keyboard Controller Test Failure
4 RAM Read/Write Failure Memory Failure
5 RTC Power Fail. COMS Battery Failure
6 Video BIOS Test Failure Video Card Failure
7 CPU Cache test failure CPU Failure
8 LCD LCD Failure
4.With the power off and the system unplugged, remove all CRUs from the system and reconnect the AC adapter to the system and try again.
Try reseatting the memory to see if that will resolve the issue. If not, the motherboard may be bad and will need to be replaced. If you need another motherboard you can call the Dell Spare Parts Department at 1-877-717-3355 to purchase one.
Thank You,

Toshiba satellitep205d-s7438 won't boot up


You need to be more specific and tell what happens when you plug in the power cord and press the power button. There are a number of reason why a computer will not boot, but if you tell what's going on someone can help you.

Computers don't boot for basically the following reasons, 1) the power supply is bad. That means when you plug it in you don't see any lights, and when you press the power button nothing happens, you hear no fans, no beeps, no blinking lights, no hard drive spinning, no cd drive clicking and nothing appears on the lcd screen.

2) A motherboard issue, usually when this happens you will either see blinking lights or hear beeps. Those blinking lights and beeps are codes that tell the technician what is really going on.

3) Static Buildup - try removing the battery and the power cord then Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds put the power cord back in (leave the battery out) and Press the Power Button. If it boots up you had static buildup and can replace the battery, count your blessings and Thank The Lord cuz a dishonest repairman would have told you he had to replace the motherboard for $300

F2 & F3


I'm going to take a stab and assume the laptop is beeping after you start it up... if it is this is called a beep code, its telling you something is wrong with it or something has changed. F2 or F3 will probably take you into its BIOS or give you access to the boot order. When I used to upgrade memory in dell latitudes it would beep on boot and say something to the effect of 'amount of system memory has changed, press F1 to continue or F2 for bios'. If you made changes to the laptop's physical components it is basically telling you something has changed and wants you to go into its BIOS to confirm. If you have done nothing to do and its beeping on boot, then its telling you there's something wrong. You will be to determine the make and model of the laptop and then obtain its service manual to look up what the beep codes indicate... there are sort of like morse code, 2 beeps means this, 3 beeps means that etc. What is the make and model and did you do anything to do (i.e. upgrade memory) before this started happening?

Laptop just beep for few seconds and goes off when put on


Check the battery. Remove and re-install. Also try booting with AC power and no battery. It the battery is shorted It can draw all the load and cause the thing to hang. Its also possible a keybd button is stuck or mashed down. Try pressing and rubbing all the keys and then rebooting. You should be able to boot and see your normal Bios boot prompts. Try tapping F2 or F8 when you hear the beeps. Check the hard drive activity light, does it blink and flash. What about the power light? Does it come on. There are beep codes that do different things and help tell you codes. But you'll have to count the number of beeps and pattern, Long short long pattern. Then somewhere on the Dell web site the list what beeps mean what. Good luck, every detail is a clue.

Remove the 1 gig chip. Pull you battery out and unplug the laptop. Hold the power button in for 10 seconds. Put the battery back in and plug the laptop back in again and try booting it up. This should reset the BIOS and allow it to boot. The beep codes you are talking about are a memory beep code and it is normally caused by adding memory or a loose memory stick. Also try pulling the existing memory and resetting it.
